Watch the spine-tingling first trailer for The Revenant

The first trailer for The Revenant, the new brutal thriller starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy, has been unveiled, scroll down and click to watch it. 

The movie has been directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu, the man who was behind the camera on the Oscar winning BiRDMAN and is based on the life of legendary frontiersman Hugh Glass. 

Set in 19th century in the bleak heart of America, DiCaprio plays Glass, a man who makes a living as a fur trapper. While hunting he is mauled by a bear and his three companions decide rob him and leave him to die, but he survives and sets out to get revenge on the men who betrayed him. 

Speaking about the movie, Iñárritu said: "This is the adventure of a man who survived the unimaginable through a long exterior journey to seek revenge and an inner journey to understand and recover all that he has lost.  I wanted to tell the story without relying on special effects. I spent five years searching for the most powerful and unexplored landscapes, where we shot using only natural light on the rocky terrain of the remote wilderness of Canada, for a long period of time to evoke a very visceral response for the viewers."

As well as Hardy and DiCaprio, Domhnall Gleeson, Will Poulter, Lukas Haas and Brad Carter also star. 

The Revenant will be released into cinemas in the US on December 25th and into UK cinemas on January 15th. BiRDMAN is available to purchase here in our online store.
